1 Cup All purpose Flour
1 Cup Whole Wheat flour (If you find durum semolina flour use ½ cup Whole Wheat flour and ½ cup semolina flour)
2 Tbsp Instant Dry Yeast
½ Cup Warm Milk
2 Tbsp Honey
2-3 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp Carom Seeds
7g Minced Fresh Herbs - Rosemary (optional)
2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
A Pinch of Salt
Warm water for kneading
1. Place warm milk and honey in a small bowl and sprinkle over the instant dry yeast. Stir the yeast to dissolve it. Cover & Set the bowl aside to proof for 7 to 8 minutes.

2. Place the flours (semolina/whole wheat and all-purpose flour) in a mixing bowl. Check the yeast to see if it has proofed - it should appear foamy, with bubbles forming on the surface.

3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the yeast mixture. Start kneading the dough - it will become soft, smooth and velvety. This process should take around 7 to 8 minutes. If you think the dough requires a bit of liquid to add in kneading, add a bit of warm water. Note: You can also use electric mixer here.

4. Place the dough in a clean mixing bowl greased with olive oil. Turn the dough in the mixing ball to coat it with the olive oil.

5. Cover the bowl with a cling/plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place for 1.5 to 2 hours or till it become double in size.(You can also keep the dough to rise in the refrigerator overnight. Just keep it an airtight plastic container greased with olive oil. Next day remove the dough from refrigerator and allow it to cool down to room temperature)

6.Take the dough out and add carom seeds and herbs(optional). Knead it for few second but don`t knead it for too long.

7.Preheat the oven to 204°C. Prepare the baking tray by brushing olive oil on it. Ensure the olive oil is brushed evenly on all areas.

8.Place your dough onto a lightly floured board. Divide the dough into 12-14 even-sized pieces. Remember to work with one piece of dough at a time. Cover the other pieces with a damp towel or plastic wrap - this will ensure that will not dry out.

9.Roll each part into thin rope with your hands - of around 12-13 inches in length and approximately thickness of a pencil. Similarly work with other dough pieces as well.

10.Place these ropes onto the baking try. Ensure you space them evenly apart by ½ an inch. Depending on the size of your baking tray , you might have to use two.

11.After forming all of the breadsticks rolls, coat them with the sesame seeds. Sprinkle some salt on the breadsticks and let them rest for about 2 minutes before you start the baking process..

12. Bake them for 12 to 15 minutes. Do a quick check after 12 minutes whether its crisp and golden brown in color. If required bake them for another 2-3 minutes.

13.Take the baking tray out and allow the breadsticks to cool completely. The wonderful grissini breadsticks are ready. Store them in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
